Advantages of Bamboo
Bamboo is a powerhouse when it comes to protecting the planet’s resources. Maturing in only two years, it doesn’t require fertilizer or pesticides to grow quickly and strongly.
Built in Temperature Control
In textile form bamboo retains many of the properties it has a plant. Bamboo is highly water absorbent, able to take up to three times its weight in water. In bamboo fabric, this translates to an excellent wicking ability that will pull moisture away from the skin so that it can evaporate. This makes it great for both hot and cool climates, bamboo clothing offers built-in temperature control. It traps warm air in its cross-sectional fibers to keep you warm in the winter, while its breathable nature and wicking properties keep moisture at bay for greater comfort in hot times.
After processing, the bamboo fiber does not contain any harmful chemicals (as per global testing and accreditation system for the screening of harmful substances within consumer textiles)
Bamboo clothing has a luxuriously soft fabric that is naturally hypoallergenic, moisture- absorbent and quick drying. The fiber is naturally smooth and round without chemical treatment, meaning that there are no sharp spurs to irritate the skin.
Bamboo can look and feel like silk or very soft cotton.
Antibacterial & Odorless
Bamboo also has many antibacterial qualities, which bamboo fabric is able to retain, even through multiple washings. Bamboo exhibits up to a 99.8% antibacterial rate.This helps to reduce bacteria that thrive in clothing and cause unpleasant odors. It can also kill odor causing bacteria that live on human skin, making the wearer and his or her clothing smell sweet.
This eco fabric will also protect you from the sun with its UV resistant qualities
